JBT TIPPER TIE will be highlighting the advantages of the new SVU6800 large calibre Automatic Double Clipper in a free-to-view JBTConnect Webinar on March 4. The SVU6800 is ideal for whole muscle products like hams and roast beef, as well as typical sliced products and deli logs, and even salami, smoked meats and heavy hung products.
The SVU6800 features an innovative mechanical design with an emphasis on productivity and reliability, make it the fastest automatic double clipper in its class. Initially introduced as a prototype at IFFA in 2019, the SVU6800 has since had a design revision and the first machines – sold between late 2020 and early 2021 – have been well received by customers.
Capable of handling products from 50-200 millimeters in diameter, with a top speed of 65 pieces/minute, the unit includes a very powerful voider so it can void through whole muscle products. It can be paired with the JBT Schröder HAMAX800 Whole Muscle Stuffer for a complete whole muscle product solution. For other applications, it features an optional slack-fill module for formed or natural shaped products.
However, what makes the SVU6800 really stand out, says Conrad Faust, Director of Product Management at TIPPER TIE, is the machine’s mechanical design. “The previous model used a lot of pneumatics, so its air consumption was high,” he explains. “This is significant because compressed air is the biggest cost in a lot of plants. This change also eliminated a lot of the sensors that are required in a pneumatic machine. The mechanical design makes it a lot faster, more cost efficient, and more reliable.”
The other great advantage of the SVU6800, continues Faust, is a robust, powerful design, which is targeted for maximum uptime and longer gaps between required maintenance or parts replacement. “The SVU6800 delivers an innovative, hygienic design; powerful, effective functionality, and a very low requirement for maintenance, for an overall lower total cost of ownership” he adds.
